Perfect Political Storm

The game of news and politics has no shame:

Day by Day cartoon notes that the politically-left blog KOS wants to exploit media coverage of dead bodies for its own political purposes. CNN wants to cover it because carnage sells. The government wants to downplay it to soften public outrage.

Whereas Political FootBall notes: "Unfortunately that is the world that we live in. The public are but pawns in this political game. Either way the dead and the suffering lose."

It's all so surreal. Watching biblical catastrophes in the comfort of our living room.

Hard to say who is worse. The political harlots or the press. Then again, what does that say about our morbid curiosity?

That is the problem of CNN coverage. It becomes a sick form of entertainment.

"Surreal" is putting it mildly. It's like watching the apocalypse in slow motion.
